Mitt Romney -- Be Afraid Be Very Afraid
On December 12th, 2007, the very same day that Romney indicated his support of the Federal ENDA legislation, news of his investment company's buyout of Clear Channel Communications surfaced. Clear Channel owns Rush Limbaugh's and Sean Hannity's contracts, and is the largest conservative radio conglomerate in the country. It may be no small coincidence that conservative talk show hosts lambasted Christian Mike Huckabee as a liberal just mere hours before he took the Iowa Caucus.
Romney is no media novice. For years he has supported the Mormon media blitz of television and radio spots that have slowly brainwashed so many of us into believing that Mormons are Christians too. Today in the national political debate, to ask questions about the Mormon "jesus" is labeled religious bigotry- hate speech that must be silenced.
Romney is said to be worth at least a quarter of a billion dollars, and has given every indication that he intends to buy the presidency, sparing no expense. If voted into office, it would be the first time ever in American history that a president would control so much wealth, as well as so much of the media.
Christians in America need to begin asking questions.
Is it really the right thing for America to make a man as powerful and rich as Romney president?
Is America in the position to take such a risk at such a crucial moment in our history?
Are we really ready to turn our nation over to an untested man that has served only one term as governor of liberal Massachusetts?
Can Romney really be trusted when he says he is opposed to abortion, does not support gay marriage or civil unions, and is ready to solve our illegal immigration crisis, even as he's waffled on all these issues?
Are we really so naïve to think that a man of such vast wealth did not build his portfolio standing on the back of the working man?
Is it really wise to vote for a man when in our gut we know for certain that something just isn't right about him?
